Time for another recipe collection from our Tasty Table blogger, Jenny!

Fall is just around the corner, and tailgating, afterschool snacks, and back porch entertaining might leave you wanting for a few new appetizer and snack recipes. Maybe some of these will hit the spot! Cheers!

Pizza Dip

1 8 oz cream cheese (light is fine)
1 jar pizza sauce
onion, chopped (as much as you would like)
mozzerella cheese
Pepperoni, chopped
Fritos scoops
Spread softened cream cheese in a 9×3 pan. Spread pizza sauce, then onion, then pepperoni, and cheese. Bake 350 for 20 minutes or until the top is browned and bubbly. Serve with Fritos scoops.

Bacon and Tomato Cups

Tried and true….tested at many a tailgate!
8 slices bacon
1 tomato, chopped
½ onion, chopped
3 oz shredded swiss cheese
½ cup mayo
1 tsp dried basil
1 (16 oz) can refrigerated buttermilk biscuit dough

Preheat oven to 375. Lightly grease a mini muffin pan. In a skillet over medium heat, cook bacon until evenly browned. Drain. Crumble bacon into a medium mixing bowl and mix with tomato, onion, swiss cheese, mayo and basil. Separate biscuits into quarters. Place each piece into cup of the prepared mini muffin tin. Fill each biscuit with the bacon mixture. Bake for 10-12 minutes in the oven until golden brown. *These can be made ahead of time and served at room temperature.

Dill Dip

My best friend has been making this, via her mom, for years. I normally don’t care for Miracle Whip, but the flavors here are really tasty.

½ cup Miracle Whip
½ cup sour cream
2 tsp dill weed
2 tsp Bon Appetit seasoning
Mix all together. Chill. Serve with veggies.

No Bake Granola Bars

These are super easy and delicious! You could add dried fruit or any other goodies as desired.

1 cup honey
1 cup peanut butter
3 cups old-fashioned oats.
Grease an 11×7 pan.

Heat the honey and peanut butter over low heat until combined. Add in oats and stir.
Add mixture to the pan and press down.
Refrigerate for several hours and then cut into bars.

Applesauce Muffins

So delicious! I grew up on these, so I know how kid-friendly they are!

1 c buttermilk
2 c sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
4 c flour
½ tsp cloves
1 ½ tsp allspice
2 ½ tsp cinnamon
1 c chopped nuts
2 c applesauce
2 tsp baking soda

Cream together first four ingredients. Add flour, spices, and nuts. Mix well. Add applesauce and baking soda. Mix well with the electric mixer. The batter will be quite stiff. Spoon into greased or paper-lined muffin tins to about half full. Bake at 400 for 10-12 minutes.
